83 year old Edie believes that it is never too late - packing an old camping bag, leaving her life behind and embarking on an adventure she never got to have - climbing the imposing Mount Suilven in Scotland.
Everyone seems to think that Edie's life might is in its final stages. Her husband, George has died and, despite her protests, her daughter Nancy wants to move her into a retirement home. But, at 83 years old, Edie has one dream that's still very much alive.Many years ago, her father planned to take her on an epic hiking trip through the Scottish Highlands. However, George, a harsh and controlling man, prevented her from going. The missed opportunity has always haunted Edie, and she decides that it's one regret she won't allow to follow her to the grave.
She leaves a message for her daughter and sets out on her own, determined to conquer the remote and challenging summit of Mount Suilven. With the help of Jonny (Kevin Guthrie), a local guide, Edie crosses moorland and trudges through bogs, towards the steep ascent to the peak.
Surrounded by the raw and stunning beauty of the Highlands, Edie's stern, bitter demeanour begins to fall away. Exposed to a completely foreign territory, she experiences the wonders of mountain rain and cheap cider, finding a joy and strength she didn't know she had. But, beyond the physical challenge, Edie is also forced to face the dark chapters in her past as she looks towards the climb that still lies ahead.
